Magnet Experiments for Kids – Make an extra powerful magnet

magnet experiment for kids

In this magnet experiments for kids, you will see how to make an electromagnet, also called a magnet control. What is an electromagnet? It is an electro technical assembly that produces a magnetic field when it is traversed by an electric current.

Where are electromagnets used? They are present in many more things than we think, for example hard disks, TVs, VCRs, radios and electric motors.

Magnet Experiments for Kids Equipment:

  • A 4.5V battery
  • 1 metre of electrical wire
  • A non-magnetic screwdriver
  • Sellotape
  • Scissors
  • Some paper clips

Magnet Experiments for Kids Instructions:

  1. Strip the ends of the wire. Wind them in a spiral around the screwdriver.
  2. Wrap the tape around the wire to hold it in place.
  3. Attach the stripped ends of the wire to the battery. Once the current is flowing, your electromagnet will become active.

Magnet Experiments for Kids Explanation :

When an electric current flows through the assembly, it creates a magnetic field. This magnetic field is the same as that which is generated by a magnet. The assembly is thus transformed into a magnet control.
